The skin around your eyes is, in fact, different than the skin on the rest of your face. For starters, it's super thin. It also lacks oil glands, which makes it drier and more prone to irritation than other parts of the body. Therefore, caring for it with a product and regimen of its own is essential.
The layer of skin under the eye is very thin about the thickness of an egg membrane so thin that even healthy-looking, tiny capillary blood vessels can be visible. Dark circles can be caused by sleep deprivation, stress, eye strain, dehydrated skin or dry eyes. That said, there are different types and causes of dark circles. Circles can appear blue, brown or black.
The delicate area around the eyes requires more attention. Neglecting this important area can cause premature lines and wrinkles as well as dryness. Using targeted and gentle skincare treatments, formulated specifically for the eye area, is crucial. This will keep the area nourished, hydrated, brighter and give it an overall healthier look. Using eye care products with Broad Spectrum SPF is key to protect the area from further UV exposure and sun damage.
Nothing works over night. Serums are a little trickier to quantify. Because they're designed to target specific concerns, and contain potent, concentrated ingredients, the time it takes them to work can vary hugely. As a general rule, you'll need to give it four to six weeks before seeing definite results.
